Teaser Tuesday: Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway


“I can’t believe you invited him inside. Now I’m going to have to pull out all the stops,” Mom said. It could get worse? I’d never seen a spell this powerful, much less used as a kind of assault on another human being. Who just might be my long-lost dad. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this. I mean, shouldn’t I at least get to know the guy before we kicked his ass?

-PG 46 ALMOST TO DIE FOR (A VAMPIRE PRINCESS OF ST. PAUL, #1)BY TATE HALLAWAY

On her sixteenth birthday, Anastasija Parker's present winds up being the shock of a lifetime. When her mom referred to her absentee dad as a deadbeat it was actually half true -- he's a vampire. And a king, no less. A king who wants his daughter to assume her rightful position at his side. But, thanks to Ana's mother, the blood of a witch also runs through her veins....

Too bad vampires and witches are mortal enemies.

With her parents gearing up for an all out brawl over her destiny, Ana's about ready to scream. But things get even crazier when a male witch and a brooding bad boy vampire start vying for her affection. Then the barely leashed tension between the vampires and the witches starts to boil over, and Ana has to figure out once and for all if she wants to become heir to her dad's throne. And deciding your eternal destiny is a pretty big deal for a girl who just wants to get through high school.


A Scorpio with a Leo Rising, Tate Hallaway is an amateur astrologer and practicing Witch. Tate has been a fan of vampire fiction since she first read Poppy Z. Brite in high school. Her first short fiction acceptance was to a vampire 'zine called Nocturnal Ecstasy Vampire Coven. Tate lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota with three black cats.
